SOT, Dachshund owner (Russian): “Today we have come to a dance parade in costumes from Italian mask theatres, because in Russia this year is declared to be a year of theatre. This is Harlequin and I am his funny friend Colombina. This is not our first parade. He loves it. As for his owner, she makes such beautiful costumes for him and they are completely new every year.”
